Product description

From the Back Cover

The City is ancient and vast.

For centuries it has been the cause of constant conflict and countless deaths . . .

At the City’s heart resides the emperor. Few have ever seen him.

Some speculate that he is no longer human, others wonder if he ever truly was. And there are those who have concluded that the only way to halt the ceaseless slaughter is to end his unnaturally long life.

The hopes of these rebels – drawn from the City’s rotting catacombs and its blood-soaked fields of battle – rest with one man: a legendary soldier, able to lead an uprising and unite a people, a man who was betrayed, imprisoned, tortured – and who might quite possibly be dead . . . --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
